They built a home on Lake Loch Lomond a decade before The Meadows was built. They had every intention of "living out their days" in their own home. As this dream became a reality, they requested family take part. Their daugh- ter, Ann, agreed to come alongside as the administrator; and their granddaughter, Megan, and her husband, agreed to move to the area for the project. Finally, the building process started. While the Bathkes still envisioned this as a project they would oversee from afar, it became evident that they would benefit from the assistance offered through The Meadows.

They remained together much longer than they would have been able to maintain at home. Mrs. Bathke went Home with Jesus in 2011. By that time, Dr. Bathke developed his own medical concerns and remained in the building to receive assistance that he now needed. He learned to embrace the care now given to him. He enjoyed talks in Ann's office on a daily basis. He sat with friends at each meal and enjoyed their company. He relished in his grow- ing family, filled with grandchildren and great-grandkids. He allowed The Mead- ows to care for him physically so he could emotionally live to the fullest. He went Home in February 2015. But their story doesn't end there. Their lives and legacy are lived out through The Meadows. The Meadows
